Shipping Container Costs to Dover, United States of America

Dover, the capital and biggest city in Delaware, is where it all started for the United States. Located on the east coast of America, the city maintains a strong location for local government, which provides the majority of the jobs for the region. The Dover Air Force Base is also a source of great pride and employment in the area. Dover is home to many manufacturing jobs and is the definition of an American “blue collar town”. Dover offers a low cost of living and an ever-increasing property value, due to its constant growth. Expats can enjoy Dover’s picturesque scenery, with the city boasting a good collection of parks and gorgeous beaches. Twice a year, the city hosts the NASCAR car race, drawing people from all over the country to enjoy America's most popular sport. Whilst Dover is still a small city with relatively few locals, it is a mere 90 miles from Philadelphia and Washington D.C., for those of you who want a taste of the big city. The rest of the time you can sit back, relax and enjoy the thriving and expanding city of Dover and all it’s beauty.

Moving to Dover can be made into an easier process by following our guide to what shipping container best fits your needs. If you're moving from a 3-bedroom house, a 20-foot container should suffice. Alternatively, you can choose a 40-foot container, which can hold items from inside a 4 or 5-bedroom house, or a 3-bedroom house, as well as medium sized vehicle. You are sure to love Dover, but remember to bring some earplugs if you catch a NASCAR race. (They can get pretty loud!)
